Project info

This road provides an important link between the townships of Jundah and Quilpie and enables access to services for residents in the region.

The Jundah-Quilpie Road is 102.7km in length, starting in Jundah and ending at the intersection with the Diamantina Development Road (Quilpie-Windorah), about 52km east of Windorah. Prior to this project, the link had 4 sections of sealed road totalling 33.77km. 

This project has paved and sealed more than 6km of the road, decreasing the amount of unsealed road remaining to 62.7km. 

Construction on the project commenced in November 2018 and was completed in late June 2019. The project has delivered many improvements to the overall safety, efficiency and wet weather accessibility of the road. In addition, the project has provided reduced whole of life asset management costs by strengthening and sealing the pavement which reduces accelerated wear and damage.

The additional surfaced sections will also support the movement of cattle-loaded road trains, improving the process of transporting cattle to market.
